What a wonderous sight to see the wand duel that ensued between our favourite boy wizard and his evil nemesis.
Spells erupted from the tips of their wands, and intertwined as they raced towards each other….

Duelling Wands comes written in 16 sizes (from small newborn to approximately 10 years of age), and is written for 8ply/DK weight yarn.

Duelling Wands has you cast on at the neckline, and work flat forming a squared neck line. You will continue working the chest and reverse stocking stitch cabled sleeves in one piece until you reach a specified chest stitch count. From here the arm stitches are put on to waste yarn, and the body finished in the round. Once the body is completed, the sleeve stitches are returned to the needles and worked in the round, with the cable travelling the full length of the sleeves.
